[OBSOLETE] RainMachine

I didnt realize that you had it on your driver page. I think i added my rainmachine. Only programs were pulled but they dont seem to work if i turn them on or off. Doesnt seem to be reporting info on the rainmachine bridge on smartthings either. When it loads info it just says "there was a problem connecting " but i think its properly connected because it pulled routine info. I cant wait to see when you get the zones. Thatll be awesome. Your hard work is appreciated! You rock… ill be watching this.

Ah nice - yes, the work I have so far is available on my driver page if you want to mess around with it. Really hopeful to get to the on/off control piece this week. We’ve had a ton of rain the last couple weeks, so motivation for me has still been low. Once I have it ready to test, I’ll put that into a new forum topic.

This stuff always takes longer than I think it would. I now have on/off control working for both zones and programs, which is huge. The last piece is to add dynamic control for zone runtime and to clean up the giant mess of code.

This is totally awesome! i got the notifications on my alexa that all the zones were added so i figured you updated the driver. This is amazing! thank you so much for your work! rainmachine totally did a bait and switch by putting their alexa integration behind a monthly subscription, and now this just made it work just the same without them. Now i have my rainmachine working without their cloud and also native like alexa integration. I tested my zones and all works perfect and super responsive.
The only somewhat error i have is when i click on the bridge itself on smartthings.
It shows blank under the bridge server status, bridge server address, and health. I also get a short notice that says : “This device hasnt updated all of its status information yet. Check again later.” But other then that. This is working great now.

Hey, just curious. I noticed that when i turn on a zone through smartthings, itll only run for 1 minute and turn off… any way to adjust this?

Can you point me to your driver page for the RainMachine Edge Driver? Thanks!

There will be. I’ve got some time off coming up in the next week and intend to finally get this finished up.

You can install what I’ve got so far here: https://bestow-regional.api.smartthings.com/invite/BxlrLZK3GxMP. I’ll start up a new thread with more details when I can.


Thanks Brian!

Thanks Brian! I was able to set up the driver and can see all my schedules, but only 4 of the 12 zones are showing up. Is this expected with this limited release? I tried setting up twice with the same results.

Great work Brian … I am assuming we will need LAN Driver/Bridge server. which one to use /install?

I installed the “RainMachine Connector” driver from the link he posted above. Searching for new devices quickly found the Rain Machine. Then I went to settings to enter the IP, port and password.

Thanks - I did that but its not pulling any Zones or Programs ?
